Sarabjit Singh
New Delhi, May 3: A group of doctors, who performed the second autopsy on Sarabjit Singh's body, were shocked after discovering that vital organs -- kidneys, heart and stomach were missing from the martyr's body.

A new controversy erupted over the shocking revelations as many believe that the second postmortem might be inconclusive as the missing organs are important to ascertain the reason of his death.

Indian Express quoted Head of the Forensic department Dr Gurmanjit Singh as saying, "Yes, we were not anticipating that Pakistan would send the body without these vital organs." However, he also claimed that Pakistan might have kept the organs for further testing.

Doctors from the panel, which had conducted second autopsy on Sarabjit's body at Patti hospital in Punjab on Thursday, May 2, claimed that the government of India should ask Pakistan to return Sarabjit's organs which the country had removed before handing over to the former.

"...otherwise, the autopsy by us here is only complementary in nature to the report of autopsy by Pakistan on those vital organs," said the doctors.

Sarabjit's body was brought to his village at Bikhiwind, Punjab 23 years after he inadvertently crossed over to Pakistan, will be consigned to flames on Friday afternoon with state honours.

A large number of people, including women, gathered at his house for the cremation of Sarabjit who succumbed to his injuries in a hospital in Lahore following a brutal attack in Kot Lakhpat Jail where he was lodged since 1990.
